year with irene. we thought it was going to be such a big event for new york and it was a dud. it wasn't a big dud for vermont, new hampshire, new jersey, because of the flooding. but this is what we have to work through right now. this storm that looks like that, like just literally nothing, still a small category 1 hurricane, but can this morph literally into something that will have 80 to 90 mile per hour winds, put 20 inches of rain down, and cause millions of people to be without power for days and probably some for weeks. can it happen? yes. all the forecasts say that it will happen. but you know what, all the forecasts said that irene would be a worse storm than it was and it's not. everyone i'm talking to believes that this storm will be significantly more impact for new york, new jersey, maybe pennsylvania than irene was. >> it's going to be a tropical storm, right, by the time it gets up, by the time it actually hits the eastern seaboard? >> no, it will be a tropical storm briefly in here. here's the model guidance for you. the models are all right there. we put them into mot
here, the effects of sandy, are already worse than what we saw with irene. >> absolutely. absolutely. >> now, you see you have packed up the dog. you were under a mandatory evacuation, but you did decide to wait until this moment. did you think that there was a time you could actually ride it out? >> yeah. >> we did until the winds really started picking up. the tide wasn't going out at all, and it was well past high tide. >> i think a lot of public officials are going to be glad that you are heeding the warning and deciding to get out. i'm going to let you get on with your boat. thank you very much for waiting. suzanne, i also want you to take a look down the street here. the guy that you see in the scuba gear, his name is paul. he is a lifeguard. paul, come on over here and talk to me here for a moment. take off the goggles and what not. i know you have been down here in the neighborhood. you've been monitoring things. obviously, you're dressed appropriately for the occasion, but i know a lot of public officials want folks like you to head on out. >> um, yes. however, i'm real clos
here. also when you think back to what happened with irene, there was concern about flooding on the sound side here of the outer banks, so, you know, this area is prone to flooding. that's something that everyone's keeping a close eye on. also the winds out here are picking up. they've been right around ten to 25 miles per hour off and on. the rain off and on. but the situation out here will deteriorate as the day goes on. this area remains under a flash flood watch and a tropical storm warning. so people are taking stock of that. they're getting supplies. a lot of peel pl-- people planng to ride this storm out. we talked about some of the people who hadn't boarded up their windows. it turns out there's a mix of people there. are some people who have homes here who don't live here, so those homes have not been boarded up. some people who plan to ride the storm up. that's what we're seeing here. some who have left the area. because when you think back to what happened with irene, irene was more of a direct hit. people saw a lot of damage in this area. this time they're expecti
manhattan shattering the previous record that because set by eileen whic irene which folks thought was pretty bad 14 months ago. sandy was nearly 1600 miles when it caught up with the winter storm in diameter and created very dangerous seas over a stretch of the atlant atlantic nearly 1600 miles in diameter. it has been a devastating storm. we are waiting right now for an update from the new york city mayor michael bloomberg on all of this. you've seen our reporters have been out there this morning and been devastating.us the damage that the scene where mayor bloomberg will be moments away. look at these pictures, it literally rushed into the shoreline of new jersey last night. 80-mile an hour wind there, pushed a wall of water inland -frbgs looking a -- look at the flooding in these areas. this shows us the true scope but it's yet to be completely understood. we start this with a brand-new hour of "america's newsroom." i'm martha maccallum. >> i'm bill hemmer. good morning again we are live in the battleground state, columbus, ohio today. the mayor again briefs in a matter of mome
irene, which hit last august in the same area. but by any measure, this storm, seemingly crushed irene. there really is no comparison, right? >> there's no comparison. i guess you could say, this is kind of like new york city's katrina. just devastating impacts here. this historic surge, 13 feet. all of that water coming on and those high wind gusts. worst-case scenario did pan out here, unfortunately. >> all right. mark mancuso, from accuweather. thanks for joining us this morning, mark. >>> straight ahead, more of our continuing coverage of sandy. the airlines trying to get back to normalcy. and what the red cross is doing to help out. >>> plus, more incredible video from across the storm zone, including rescues that didn't have to happen. we'll be right back. new pink lemonade 5-hour energy? 5-hour energy supports the avon foundation for women breast cancer crusade. >>> welcome back, everyone. 5 million people take the new york city subways every day. and this morning, the entire system is shut down. seven subway tunnels under the east river are flooded. and the electricity that pow

? >> well, charlie, it's a major disaster in new jersey. and, you know i've gone through irene, the october snow storm, the blizzard in 2010. this is, by far, the worst thing we've gone through. we have 2.4 million people or households, rather without power, over 200 state roads closed. it wasn't actually a levee. it was a berm and the berm was overwhelmed by the tidal surge that came up the raritan bay. we are in the process of rescue rescuing people from moonachie, in middlesex county rescuing people from their homes not from river flooding but tidal surge from the bays. not even to mention what's happened on the jersey coastline, which i think in the long run will be the part of the state that's the most devastate ed ed. you saw the scenes yesterday from up and down our coast. new jersey, obviously, this is where it came onshore. i think the state of new jersey took it in the neck worse than any other state. it's going to take us a while to dig out from under it but we will dig out from under it. >> many people waking up now to all the damage. can you calculate how mu
iran, which everybody thought you know, how come we did not get strong winds, irene was dragging in dry air from the west. still a $15 billion store. this comes out from the southeast and the problem you have with that is you look at atlantic city beaches or down in delaware and maryland, those beaches have the water piling up and in. 1944 hurricane destroyed the entire atlantic city boardwalk in past 50-60 miles to the east. this has the possibility to have unprecedented storm surges. i believe it is a pick your poison. if it is further north, you can send a storm surge through long island where you are actually piling water up good this is a very situation. dagen: i love seeing you, joe. next time, i hope it is something else we can talk about. [ laughter ] >> i will come on and talk about nice weather. dagen: thank you. that does not help us at all. you have been talking about this exact type of storm. in memory. several years. thank you so much. eleven days until we go to the voting booth and elect the next president of the united states and that we have this morning's gross domesti
is that we kind of had those same warnings for irene. i don't want people to go oh, they just say that all the time just to get our attention. but, no, there is potential for some dire stuff going on here. and we're talking about power down -- power lines down trees down, all kinds of other things. finally the computers are agreeing. and you can see a couple doing loops. if this thing does a loop right over new york or new jersey or pennsylvania, that means 24 to 36 hours of rain coming down an inch in an hour. do the math. that's a couple feet of potential water. here we go. the potential impacts, i think the coastal infland flooding the biggest. obviously we saw that in vermont from irene. the waves will be larger than 30 feet battering long island, new rhode island all the way to massachusetts and new jersey depending on where it lands. coastal erosion. we could lose homes as the beach gets washed away and power outages could be in the millions taking literally maybe a week to get all those power lines back up. and that could be far enough that it could affect the ele
. but people are taking preparations. and perhaps because of this, victor. when irene came through, irene was more of a direct hit in this area. in fact, there's a coastal road that runs along here, highway 12, a good part of that was washed out. they're not expecting quite a direct hit with this particular storm, but again, they are talking about the wind, the rain and power outages. and victor, that's really what people are bracing for as the storm gets to us. >> i'm wondering, george, i saw an analyst yesterday saying this is going to be a lot worse than irene. are people sticking around for it, or are they boarding up and getting out of town? >> reporter: you know, when you walk around, when you take a look at how people are preparing for this storm, everyone's keeping a very close eye on us, as we report what's happening. they're watching the track of the storm system. right now it looks like it will move in a little further north than where we are. but we will feel the first brunt of the storm. we will see a lot of the winds that come through, the winds that could get up 40, 50 mile
of that was west of the coast, at least where i was we didn't get the rain we got with irene, not even close. >> right, we were most concerned about the flooding because of the tidal action. right there, yeah, the surge, we have wonderful beaches and between dewey beach and bethany beach we had to close route 1. there are a lot of others we had to close throughout the state. the bay communities were hit hard but we've got people out looking right now. we think we escaped the worst of it. >> and total cost for delaware, any idea yet in. >> we don't know. we have people as we say looking right now, i think it will take us a little while to figure that out. certainly concerned about the 44,000 families without power but we're obviously looking forward to utility crews getting out there as soon as, once conditions permit them to be out there. they can't be in harm's way if the winds are too high. >> for your state was this not as significant or not as negative of an outcome as irene, governor? >> well, i mean i'd put it this way we have a lot of flooding and we do have 40,000 plus people without
's preventing anything from turning back out to sea. even irene moved up along the coast and parallel but scooted on .n out. that central atlantic block is probably going to force the iorm westward. the cold pool over the eastern united states, that's the winter storm you were referring to you. , thaake all the tropical energy, all the heat from the tropics, you combine it with winter cold, that's an explosive ingredient in the atmosphere and that's why we think this storm has so much potential. i encourage everybody to pay attention to what their local emergency management personnel tell them. >> pelley: the last major hurricane to hit the u.s. this late in the season, was wilma, sven years ago today. maat was a category three storm. it killed five people in florida that and caused more than $20 billion in damage. it's the third costliest hurricane in the u.s. after andrew and katrina. we are down to the last 12 days of campaign 2012. that mpoll out tonight suggests that mitt romney has closedly the gender gap. last month, president obama led poig women by 16 points, but rew, they're
on the east coast. concerns it could hammer areas hit hard by hurricane irene. that was in august of 2011. crews are now getting ready for that. have a listen. >> just taking precautions. 75 yards off the river. full moon tide, hurricane, a lot of wind. it is going to come. just a matter how much. >> you get cinder blocks. we put stuff upstairs. like big stuff like tvs couches tables. stuff in the kitchen we move in case the water gets super high. >> try to be as prepared as you can. there are only some things you can do. we hope and pray the storm goes east. bill: those folks are in florida. janice dean in the fox news extreme weather center where she will stay until tuesday or wednesday of next week. >> or thursday. bill: what do you see right now, jd? >> as you mentioned we've got a lot of things coming together. we have kind of an atmospheric traffic jam that will allow this storm system to move northward and back up into the coast. this is the arctic cold front that will kind of break down as it moves eastward. that will allow this system to move westward. so right now, a hurricane 8
we had last year with irene and all the damage with that. not too dissimilar storm. potential impacts and winds this time, much bigger story, i think we'll see winds 60-80 miles an hour and this time a long storm, 24-36 hours. that means we'll see a plotted more people with significant power outages and lots of damage to the beaches. >> shep: and cold. rick riechmuth will keep on it day in and day out. 12 days until americans pick the next president. new poll governor romney gaining ground in a crucial battleground state. president obama's lead among women voters in virginia is down 12 points and it's six points. it shows the president and governor are tied at 47% among women voters nationwide. month ago he a 16-point lead. women are projected to make up more than 16% of the electorate. they have cut the men 13 points to five points. a spokesperson says she is not buying it. any poll that shows us tied with women and men is not a poll we are placing bets on in vegas. president targeting three it's a as he wraps up a 48-hour campaign marathon and governor romney is doing the make or br
, then look what happens here, kind of just rotates and spins and that's the scary aspect. remember, irene in vermont all that flooding. sandy is rotating and spinning for 24 hours dumping an inch of rain an hour. so, this is the potential for devastating and deadly flooding. couple that with, of course, this wind field 70-mile-per-hour winds extending 450 miles out and the potent energy with this bringing snow potentially to the mountains on the western side of it. so, guys, this -- computer models have been for 25 years and they have never had to run this exact scenario. so, a lot of very intriguing, but scary things about it. >> alexandria, thanks. >>> a storm of this size can cause a nightmare, not just in terms of -- they are asking people to come in from out of state to help the power company. also opening a staging area at baltimore's airport to prepare for the storm's arrival. >>> 300 national guardsmen can be put on recovery. >>> the storm is already having an impact on the presidential campaigns, especially in some key swing states. both vice president biden and mitt romney cance
and down the shore. >> it is just like nothing i have ever seen before. you know, we had irene. last year we had a nor'easter in '92. i remember as a kid hurricane donna but nothing like this. there are so many people stranded without shelter. and the damage to the public infrastructure, to the boardwalks, municipal buildings, firehouses it is just endless. bill: frank pallone, thank you. we're going to stay in touch with you and a lot of others down there and hopefully get the word out. if we can help in any way making the word more public we certainly will, sir. thank you and good luck to you and your family. >> thank you. bill: frank pallone, democrat on the jersey shore. waking up to a whole new world as so many people are. >> sandy's wrath is extending into west virgina. have you seen the snow that got dumped on west virgina. look at this scene. blizzard conditions there. up to three feet of snow in some parts of the state. we're live there on the ground now. we're going to tell you what is going on. bill: while we continue to deal with that storm damage we can not forget this. you'r
, connecticut, long island, new jersey, than irene did last year. this could be a big storm as it makes that turn and slams directly into where new york and new jersey come together, the water could really pile up in here. maybe that problem we thought about last time where water's in the subway, if it gets to be right in new york harbor, we're talking about that scenario potential again. >> chad, we'll keep watching. thanks. >>> a lot more we're following. isha is here with the bulletin. >>> a new york city police officer accused of plotting to kidnap, rape, kill, cook and cannibalize as many as 100 women is being held without bail. the 28-year-old officer is accused of illegally accessing a national crime database to locate potential targets. he did not enter a plea in court today. >>> lee boyd malveaux told the "today" show he was sexually abused by john alan mohammed, the master will did mind mind o attacks that terrorized the washington area in 2002, saying he knew it was wrong but didn't have the willpower to say no. he was 17 at the time of the attacks and he was 15 when his acco

year during irene there was a lot of talk that it came in as a strong tropical storm, but this will be a strong storm and a large one, and they will impact us many many different ways. one of the ways we'll be impacted, and it was noted on the last hurricane advisory was it was storm surge. that's not just the rain falling from the sky. we're going to get a lot of rain, and we'll see the piling up of the water in dangerous areas, possibly long island sound or even new york harbor. what happens when the hurricane winds -- once it starts getting into that shallow coastal area, it has nowhere else to go, brook, but up and out and inland. storm surge can travel many, many miles. we've seen that before with past hurricanes. this is a big concern for this system particularly, amongst many others like power outages. >> okay. sort of like the perfect storm all these conditions coming together. we'll look for it monday night into tuesday. bonnie, thank you. >>> big heads up on some supreme court cases we're going to be watching for this week. it could stop you from getting rid
officials it could be weeks, not days, before full power is restored to everyone. >> during hurricane irene restoration took eight days. for hurricane sandy the full restoration may, in fact, take longer. >> to give you a sense of the impact, check out this comparison of what the normal manhattan skyline liked light lack night. how to do it tom cune, the president of the institute. one of the most jarring images is video that made the rounds online about power stations at 14th streit and fdr highway exploding and lighting up the sky in this explosion. all of the lights around it going out. i like at that. i used to live icouple of blocks from there. i know power is still out in my neighborhood. i say that means we're kind of screws for a long time here. is that what that picture suggests to you? >> well, the picture might suggest that. that particular incident wasn't as serious as some of the other situations they have in lower manhattan, which is that water has gotten into the underground equipment. you have to clean out the equipment and get the water out. it's a very, very difficult task
this was an unprecedented event. we weathered hurricane irene 14 or 15 months ago with the same emergency preparations and it didn't come close to endangering the hospital. this hospital sits 20 feet above sea level, we're actually 15 feet higher than nyu hospital next door because the terrain rises slightly here, so it was obviously not anticipated that we would get a storm surge of this magnitude, the national hurricane center was predicting even at its highest 11-foot storm surge, so clearly here out of the east river, just because of the way the waters were being pushed and the level of the wind speeds, we wound up getting a lot of water here. we've never seen anything like this at bellevue hospital. >> thank you very much. we appreciate your taking the time tonight. >>> the monumental task of removing debris and getting the lights turned back on is under way on long island, new york. complicating matter this is evening, roadways are still blocked by floodwaters and preventing about 5,000 utility workers from even starting to restore power to parts of that island. republican congressman peter king
hurricane irene it wasn't so bad here. certainly this storm is a new category. when it comes to cleaning up here, it will take a long time. >> jennifer davis, thanks very much. >>> it's hard to even understand that kind of devastation when you see it. it's like -- jenny is right, a bar of soap sitting there. >> i've been to devastation like that, and tv doesn't really -- we look at it and go, that's terrible, it doesn't really capture it. >> right. >> it's extraordinary. >> certainly can't capture the human pain associated with it. >> right. >> yep. it's been tough. going to continue to be so, i'm afraid. >> you hate to say we dodged a bullet, you don't feel comfortable saying that when people are hurting so bad. what's going on today? >> right. i want to do trick or treat. turn the corner into something more fun. >> we need to know. >> here we go. the good news is, i think we'll be dry. not a lot of wind. fine conditions. a little cool, and a creepy chill. [ creepy laugh by tony ] >> tony, that was pretty good. or was that you, allison? upper 40s as trick or treaters head out to take care
of practice with stuff like this, whether it's irene a week ago, isaac, months ago and we're mobilizing blood, making sure the blood supply needs to be in the key areas of the country. >> rick: the last minute preparations, there isn't a lot of time left. any last minute thing you can suggest to people that they do? >> the most important thing right now in the last minute if there's little time to get out and make sure you've got the food and water you need in terms of your kit, is to have a battery operated radio, something that can give you the ability to listen to any evacuation orders or any emergency notices that may be going out. >> rick: all right, charles one last thing-- >> mention that the red cross has-- >> that's exactly where i was going to lead you i saw the phone in your hand and talk about an app? >> i am going to talk about a hurricane app. the red cross has a hurricane app that's available for apple and android, folks can download it, it's got a tremendous "i'm safe" feature that allows people with a one push of a button let friends and family know they're safe and an import

, would be more dangerous than even irene from last year. it turned out to be a huge flood problem for virginia, vermont and new jersey. i know it's late in the season, but the water is still warm enough to make this storm generate. it went -- i was watch it last night in bed on my -- i was tweeting from 8:00 until 12:00, and this thing went from an 80-mile-per-hour storm to about a 115 as it left jamaica and slammed into cuba, and that was only in five hours. there's a lot of potential. >> is it true that a late storm as well could be a lot deadlier, a lot more dangerous late in the season? >> i would say an earlier storm, october 10th, that peak day with the waters the warmest would be the most concerning, but i think people probably take it less serious. oh, come on, it's november. it can't happen. there's not going to be anything bad. if you let your guard down and think that it's out of season, you're wrong. look at the waves there. is that miami? somewhere. look at that. the way it's crashing on. that's why you can't even be on the sea wall. you need to be behind it and in th
